KURTIS USA, announces the launch of the “Surf King, El Brophy and Brinnovator” Eco- Friendly Sunglasses designed with natural, sustainable handcrafted Bamboo Frames and Phazer Polarized Lenses derived from a tree pulp base and fully biodegradable.

“We wanted to WOW our current customers, make an eco-friendly statement and offer the action sports industry a revolutionary line of eyewear.  These will be the coolest sunglasses you’ve ever worn and market testing proves they look great on both men and women.” Says CEO & Founder Kurtis Shipcott.

Considered to be wearable art, these high quality sunglasses come with a 10 Tree Guarantee.  “We partnered with our friends at Trees for the Future and for every pair of Kurtis Eyewear purchased we will fund the planting of 10 trees in endangered forest regions of Nicaragua.  Many scholars refer to Central America as being the lungs of our planet.” says, Shipcott.

Why Bamboo?
Bamboo is the fastest growing woody plant in the world, it’s strong yet light and consumes carbon dioxide at rapid rates while producing 30% more oxygen than trees (C02 is the #1 contributor to global warming).

Inspired by ancient handcrafted wooden Alaia Surfboards, Kurtis wanted to pay tribute to its surfing roots with the Alaia Series handcrafted Wooden Sunglasses.  “We’re passionate about surfing, but you don’t have to be a surfer to wear Kurtis. Our goal is to protect your eyes from the harsh glare and cancer causing UV rays with safe, stylish and functional eyewear.  No Fried Eyes & No Fried Earth.”
